MR. EDITOR -- I wish to inquire
as to the whereabouts of my brother
Frank Francis. Three of us,
brothers, Gus, Thomas and Frank,
were brought here by a trader
named Gen. George Dorris. I was
sold to Wm. Desheil; Thomas was
sold on Red River above Shreveport;
I left Frank with the trader
at Shreveport and have not heard
from him since. Our mother's
name is Pauline Francis. We had
three sisters, Minerva, Rhoda and
Mary. Mary is in Santa Fe, New
Mexico, where she was carried by
Frank Green. Our first owner was
widow Mary Francis. We came
from Platte City, Platte Co.,
Missouri. Any information of him will
be highly appreciated. Address me
at Shreveport, La.
AUGUSTUS MARSHALL.
